Handling Driver’s License Restoration Process Solo? You Have Everything to Lose


driver's license restoration process

Thinking of handling the driver’s license restoration process on your own? Think again.

We often receive calls from people who thought they could do it on their own, only to be sorely disappointed.

They tell me that they’ve been sober and haven’t been arrested in many years.

They thought that is what it would take to get a license back.

Unfortunately, it’s not that simple.

Burden of Proof

Driver license appeals are legal proceedings.

The Administrative Rules and Rules of Evidence apply at these hearings.

You’re expected and required to know the rules.

Unlike a criminal proceeding, where an accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, in a driver’s license hearing you have the burden of proof.

You have to prove that…

Minimum Requirement

At a minimum, you’ll have to provide an accurate and comprehensive Substance Use Evaluation, a drug test with at least 10-panels and two integrity variables, and three to six-community letters that include specific and accurate information about you and the writer.

One imperfection or discrepancy can cost you your license.

I can’t even tell you the number of times we’ve received a call from someone who lost, not because they’re still drinking, but because there was an error or omission in the paperwork.

Testifying On Your Own

You’ll also have to testify on your own behalf subject to the interrogation of the Hearing Officer.

Have you ever been so nervous that you were not able to say what you mean to say?

Have you ever volunteered information that was later used against you?

We’ve seen countless cases that were lost simply because the petitioner was naïve about this part of the process.

What You Have to Lose

If you lose, you’ll have to wait a year before you can try it again.

Do you have a year to waste?

What’s worse is that you may screw your case up so bad that it’s now impossible to win next time.

If you have a revoked license for multiple drunk driving offenses, contact us for the best chance to get it back.

Our legal team highly is experienced in conducting the driver’s license restoration process with a 98% success rate.
